MISSOURI WINE AND GRAPE BOARD 



Annual Report 

of the 

Missouri Wine and Grape Board 

Executive Summary 

The Missouri Wine and Grape Board was created by the Missouri General Assembly in 2006 as 
an independent political and corporate body of the state of Missouri (Missouri statute 262.820). 
Prior to this date, the Board existed in advisory form, with members appointed by the Director of 
Agriculture in the early 1980's. The purpose of the Board is to further the growth and economic 
development of the grape growing industry in the state of Missouri. 

The Wine and Grape Board is responsible for researching, developing and promoting Missouri 
grapes, juices and wine. The Board is funded by the collection of a statewide tax imposed on all 
wine sold in Missouri at the rate of 12 cents per gallon. These funds support the program's three 
sections: enology and viticulture advisory services, research and promotion and marketing. 
Program expenditures provide: 

• Professional advice to Missouri grape growers and wine makers 

• Applied research for developing grape varieties and cold hardiness studies 

• Consumer education to increase awareness of Missouri grapes and wine industry 

The Board is governed by a bipartisan commission whose eleven members are appointed by the 
governor with the consent of the Senate. The director of the Department of Agriculture also 
serves as an ex-officio member. Members serve a four- year term, but can serve no more than 
two consecutive four-year terms. A member may, however, after serving two consecutive four- 
year terms and retiring for a minimum of one full year, be eligible for reappointment to the 
Board. Business is conducted through quarterly Board meetings or conference calls. Special 
meetings are held as needed. 

The Board elects their own officers and has the authority to appoint staff. Tim Puchta was 
elected to serve as chairman, Jon Held as vice-chairman, Barbara Gibbs Ostmann as marketing 
chairwoman, Tony Kooyumjian as research chairman and Jim Anderson is currently serving as 
executive director. 



PROGRAM SUMMARY 

The purpose of the Missouri Wine and Grape Board is to have the Missouri wine and grape 
industry recognized as a pre-eminent producer of profitable premium wines in the Midwest. 

Missouri wineries continue to refine their grape growing and winemaking skills to offer 
distinctive, quality wines. The Wine and Grape Board sponsors research at the Institute for 
Continental Climate Viticulture & Enology (IVVCE) center, where the quest for better, hardier 
grapevines is ongoing. The number of wineries in the state has grown from 52 in 2004 to 88 in 
2009 - a 70% increase in just five years. Wine, grape, and related industries produced an 
estimated 6,186 jobs and $701 million of total economic value to the state. Missouri has more 
than 1,400 acres of grapes and produces more than 352,000 cases of wine sold. 



Following is a description of activities for the various programs offered by the Board. 

Marketing 

The marketing committee is responsible for promoting Missouri wineries and Missouri wines as 
entertainment, education, tourism (Missouri is ranked 3 rd as a wine tourism leader) and lifestyle. 
Methods of reaching our target market have been conducted through sponsorships to expand the 
wine culture, grass roots tastings, trade shows, wine 101 classes, conducting classes at 
universities and colleges, print advertising and media. 

Research 

The Research Committee is responsible for programs covering research extension, education, 
and service in the areas of viticulture and enology. These efforts are mainly conducted through a 
unique partnership between the University of Missouri and the Wine and Grape Board. This 
partnership is primarily served through the Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and 
Enology. In addition, collaborative projects are conducted with other institutions in state and out 
of state.

The Wine and Grape Board stimulates growth of the grape and wine industry for the economic 
and social benefit of the citizens of Missouri. The number of wineries Missouri wine production 
in the crowded and fragmented wine market will require a relentless focus on quality and value. 

State and regional organization support is critical to the success of the renewed industry. Based 
on the recent legislative victories, there appears to be strong momentum in favor of the wine and 
grape industry in Missouri driven by the efforts of the Missouri Wine and Grape Board. 

Missouri's wine and grape industries will benefit from America's steadily rising demand for 
wine - and for better wine. Wine is the most sought-after consumer good of this era: an 
affordable luxury.
